Then keep the party going oceanside or, for smaller groups, hold your reception on the Gazebo Terrace. The sea-view area can host dinner and dancing for a maximum of 60 people (wedding packages start at $949 and include an officiant, services of a wedding coordinator, a bouquet and a boutonniere, a wedding cake and sparkling wine. Complimentary wedding packages are also available; secretsresorts.com).
Legally Wedded: Most resorts can assist with paperwork to wed in Mexico and inform you on the rules in specific areas, since marriage requirements vary by city. All couples must be 18 or older and not currently married. You’ll also need to present a valid passport, tourist card (typically issued upon arrival at the airport), birth certificate, blood test results (done in Mexico), completed marriage application forms from the local registry and four witnesses. All foreign documents, with the exception of your passport, will need to be translated and notarized. The bride and groom, plus their witnesses, must arrive in Mexico four business days before the wedding day for legal ceremonies.
